Jesus is our knight

“For he has rescued us from the kingdom of darkness and transferred us into the Kingdom of his dear Son” (Colossians 1:13, NLT).

We love a good story—just look at how much money movies still take in at the box office, and now we can download as well as rent them. It seems we can’t get enough of knights jousting, going on quests and rescuing fair maidens, as movies and TV series continue the theme. Who doesn’t love a thrilling sword fight, with good triumphing over evil?

All good stories have their source in the pages of the Bible. We (humanity) are the fair maiden, trapped in the darkness of sin and death. God is the just king who sent his best knight to rescue us and bring us back to his kingdom of light, where goodness reigns and there is peace and plenty for all. It’s the true Camelot, but rather than just watching it, we get to live it—forever!

  1. This great analogy got me to think of our knight being led into the wilderness by the Holy Spirit to do battle with the prince of the power of darkness..The battle began in the wilderness but culminated with Him giving His life for us and then taking it up again to complete the glorious finale when He is crowned King of Kings by His Father, our knight in shining armor then rides in on a white horse and takes the bride that He saved to be His beloved forever and ever at that glorious event = the marriage supper of the lamb.

    1. The verse in my post that talks about God rescuing us from the kingdom of darkness made me think of a knight rescuing his bride – the bride of Christ!
